The 5 stocks you can’t afford not to start your portfolio with

With all lingo you have to learn like 10 day average volume, shares outstanding, dividend yield, and blah blah blah, I just wanted to break down what I though we’re just some damn good stocks to buy when you’re just getting started. 

I wanted to provide pictures of the only stat that matters — ROI (return on investment) from the leaders of finance, CNBC. Check it out. 

1. AT&T – (T)

First on my list is AT&T. Everyone’s favorite. Just look at the return. LOOK at the return! In One year, you can expect 22.17% return on your investment. Plus it’s entry price is pretty cheap. I mean c’mon, $50 is a perfect way to start trading. 

That means if you put $10,000 in AT&T, you’ll have $12,200! What can I say AT&T is just one of those well-known stocks that performs month after month.  

Just in case you were wondering, this was actually the very first stock that I bought. Just look at the chart and you’ll see why. AT&T also pays a dividend of 4.49% every quarter.

2. Johnson & Johnson – (JNJ)

Johnson & Johnson is another solid stock. It pays a dividend of 2.55%. It’s return is STOOPID. 25% return in a year is basically spending a $1 to get $1.25. Simple math. 

Win-win. And as you can see in the chart. It just goes up and up and has been doing so for years. 

It’s a little more expensive but the return is un-fuckwitable. 

3. 3M – (MMM)

3M is a nice stock to get into when you’re ready to spread your investments out over different industry’s. These guys make everything. And their stock shows it. It’s a little more expensive, but remember, this is not a stock to make the most money with, this is a stock the spreads your risk out over different industries. 

The return is nice, 15.67 and has a dividend of 2.45%. I’ll take that. 

4. Coca-Cola – (KO)

Coca-Cola is one of the oldest companies around. Their stock doesn’t move much but that’s a good thing if your just trying to get the hang of how stocks work. Even if the stock doesn’t move, it pays a dividend of 3%, so it’s a good place to park your money. 

This stock is perfect to balance out your portfolio if you have a lot of risky stocks. It can act as an anchor to balance things out if shit gets crazy. Plus it’s cheap. And 10% is not a bad return. 

5. Spyder ETF – (SPY)

This is the ONE. The Spyder ETF is a stock that does whatever the S&P 500 does. And the S&P goes up. Point, blank, period. 

This is what I call the auto pilot stock. Where do I start…

Okay, so there’s a stock called an index fund. It contains all 500 of the stocks in the S&P 500. It’s costs whatever the S&P is at. As I write this, the S&P is at 2,163.78 which means it would cost $2,163.78 to buy ONE. So, someone came out with their own stock that does the same thing for less money. Called the Spyder Electronically Traded Fund – or ETF. And it only costs (at the moment) about $200. 

Can you say, life saver?? Now look a the returns:

Not that amazing, huh? That’s the point. This stock is not for people that are looking to be actively trading everyday or month. This is a stock you buy and don’t have to check. In fact, look at your return over 10 years:

The Spyder ETF should balance the risk in your portfolio. I use it as an anchor and a base for my portfolio.
